As a testament to the ineffectiveness of laws when not rigorously enforced (hello, speed limit, I’m looking at you!), the lack of enforcement on mental health parity has been devastating. Mental health parity means that insurance companies are required, by law, to offer the same coverage and benefits for mental disorders as they do for physical conditions. When an American seeks treatment for a mental health or substance abuse problem, chances are they are going to face some pretty steep hurdles. And those hurdles are only getting worse before they get better, according to a new study examining insurance claim data f...

Authors: Chen P Abstract Despite many advances in pharmacotherapy over the past half centurye, only a fraction of patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) can achieve remission after the first or second trial of pharmacotherapy. Those who failed standard antidepressant treatment are termed as Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). Pharmacotherapy for TRD is more viable over past 15 years in part due to advances in clinical trials such as the Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) and the US Department of Veterans Affairs Augmentation and Switching Treatments for Improving Depressio...
